That was an amazingly ignorant thing to say. Canada has no national
highways and nothing even remotely close to the Interstate network.
They're all maintained, designed and numbered by the individual
provinces, even within the Trans-Canada system, and very few freeways
cross between provinces.  Route numbers in BC, for example, are
sequential save for 99; in Ontario, they're all three-digit and the
first digit indicates the type of route; and in Quebec, the numbering
and design considerations have more in common with mainland France than
anything else in North America.
